She had to do dishes. I had to do dishes. So I suggested a race. We texted each other pictures of our cluttered sinks and counters and began. I lost. Her prize, a homemade headband. I figured she’d win. She had less to do. But I got a couple loads done and now I get to crochet! Win-win, right?
This headband will be wide, and I’m using one of my favorite ombres of Peaches and Cream cotton. The color is called Sail Away Stripes. I’m using a size H hook because it was the closest one when I went to look for something smaller than a J, and also because I do tend to crochet tighter than most, so I often go up one hook size.
So, I had finished a few rows, and thought it’d be nice to listen to some music. I typed “uke music gentle” into the youtube search bar and was not disappointed. I found a Beetles uke cover first, and then some originals on guitar. Here’s a nice one. The Milky Way. This guy has some really well viewed videos on YouTube.
So, I’m finished with my friend’s prize now. I hope she likes it!
I sent her a text message with this silly picture of me modeling it.
